Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.248 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,846 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,158 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 14,343rd in the world and 515th in Osiris for Highest Poor Incomes, with 77,223.95 Standard Monetary Units.
